Negotiate a Job Offer

“You’re hired” are the words you want to hear after interviewing, but evaluate whether the job matches your interest and work values.   Consider your basic monthly expenses to determine if the starting salary will cover them. Determine average starting salaries by job category and geographic location prior to interviewing to have an idea if the offer is fair.  Check out these links for negotiation tips and starting salary information:
